Do you suffer from gas, bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea, or chronic constipation? If so, you could benefit from gut microbiome and GI rehab. While physicians often place these conditions under the IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) umbrella, the underlying causes of IBS, unfortunately, go undetected with traditional testing. Identifying these abnormalities through gut microbiome and gastrointestinal analysis allows us to provide appropriate treatments that help alleviate your symptoms.
In addition to IBS conditions, gut imbalances can also lead to:
- Poor digestion
- Difficulty losing weight
- Low energy & fatigue
- Feelings of anxiety
- Brain fog
- Joint discomfort
- Trouble falling and staying asleep
- Chronic skin conditions
- Food sensitivities
- Thyroid imbalance
- Nutrient deficiencies
Analyzing and rehabbing your gut can help you live a longer, healthier, and happier life.
What is the Gut Microbiome and GI Testing?
After providing a stool sample, we run a group of advanced tests that provide actionable clinical information for the management of your gastrointestinal health. We analyze a variety of biomarkers that provide insight into digestive function, intestinal inflammation, and the intestinal microbiome. Specifically, we group the biomarkers and score 5 key areas relating to GI function:
- Metabolite Imbalance
Additionally, we organize the microbiome into 3 key areas:
Amazingly, gut microbes are codependent with one another and with their human host, and the health of one affects the other.
What are the Gut Rehab Treatments?
After analyzing the status of your gut microbiome and gastrointestinal tract, we provide a personalized action plan to rehab your gut and GI function. The rehab plan includes food, supplement, and lifestyle recommendations. Patients can expect that symptoms will improve as identified functional imbalances and inadequacies become normalized through the targeted dietary, lifestyle, and supplementation therapeutics.
Can Gut Rehab Help with Weight Loss?
The gut microbiome is a regulator for multiple systems in your body, and it directly affects your ability to lose weight. It is an ecosystem of trillions of bacteria, which when balanced, will help you get the most out of your meals. A healthy gut can take the nutrients from food and transform them into fuel that can boost your metabolism, increase your energy levels, improve digestibility, and provide feelings of satiety after eating.
It is important to know though, that your biology and gut microbiome is unique to you. How you respond to individual foods, and more specifically carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, is completely different than anybody else. This is why fad diets may work, but usually do not lead to long-term results.
The key is to understand which foods, supplements, and macronutrients are best for you and your microbiome. This is why Mygenics recommends the Gut Rehab Program, alongside Genetic Testing and Micronutrient Testing, as part of our Medical Weight Loss Program. The best way to set yourself up for healthy weight loss and continued weight management begins with a healthy gut.
